About this document and download

The Community Navigator Pilot Program supports a network of organizations committed to serving small businesses and entrepreneurs in underserved communities.

This network uses a 'Hub and Spoke' model: a centralized 'Hub' coordinates and supports local 'Spoke' organizations on the ground. 

The attached spreadsheet contains lists of Hub and Spoke organizations:

  • On the 'Hubs' tab, each Hub has a link to its website. Note that some Hubs may be located in one city or state, but support Spokes that serve a wider region.
  • On the 'Spokes' tab, each Spoke is connected to its Hub.

Each of the 51 Community Navigator projects falls into one of three tiers, related to the geographic reach of that project:

  • Tier 1 - national level:
    (8 awards, max $5M per award)
    Organizations support a minimum of five service areas (not within the same state), containing a population greater than 500,000.
  • Tier 2 - state/local level:
    (11 awards, max $2.5M per award)
    Organizations support an individual state, region, municipality, or city with total service population of greater than or equal to 500,000.
  • Tier 3 - local level:
    (32 awards, max $1M per award)
    Organizations support a region, municipality, city, tribal or rural community with total service population of less than 500,000.
